MOTOREX Celebrates 2018 FIM Enduro World Championship Success
At the end of the 2018 season, the MOTOREX supported Costa Ligure Beta Boano Racing team enjoyes double title winning success thanks to youngsters Brad Freeman and Matteo Cavallo.
Langenthal, Switzerland – The eighth and final round of the 2018 FIM Enduro World Championship has delivered yet more international enduro success for MOTOREX, with no fewer than three world championship titles falling to teams supported by the Swiss company’s comprehensive range of lubricants, care and maintenance products.
Moving into the Enduro 1 class for 2018 and after topping the Enduro Junior championship in 2017, Brad Freeman needed little time to find his feet and start winning. Two third place results at the series opener in Finland were followed by a double runner-up result at round two in Spain. Round three saw the young Brit take his first senior class win, starting a run of victories that ultimately took him to the Enduro 1 World Championship title and an incredible runner-up position in the overall EnduroGP standings at the season finale in Germany.
Further success for the MOTOREX supported Costa Ligure Beta Boano Racing team came in the under 23 category, where Italian Cavallo claimed his first ever international title by becoming the 2018 FIM Enduro Junior World Champion. Dominating the junior category, Cavallo secured nine wins and finished outside the top three in just one race throughout 2018.
Member of the Italian based Jolly Enduro Team, Ruy Barbosa has delivered MOTOREX a third world championship title in 2018 by becoming the FIM Enduro Youth World Champion. The young rider from Chile has been a force to be reckoned with in the 125cc category of the championship. Claiming his first class win in Estonia, Ruy went on to wrap up the season with an impressive total of seven victories in 11 races days.
Jolly Enduro Team’s Alex Salvini has also enjoyed a stellar season of Enduro World Championship competition aboard his Husqvarna machine. Fighting for the coveted Enduro 2 World Championship until the last day of racing in Germany, the Italian faced a small technical issue that stopped him from securing the title. Earning eight class victories during the season, Salvini placed third in the 2018 FIM Enduro 2 World Championship and 4th in the EnduroGP standings.
MOTOREX would like to congratulate Brad Freeman, Matteo Cavallo, Ruy Barbosa and Alex Salvini, as well as the Costa Ligure Beta Boano Racing and Jolly Enduro Team for continuing MOTOREX’ position as the most successful oil and lubricant manufacturer in the championship.
